Valentine Mantel……..

We don’t decorate a whole lot for Valentine’s Day…but we do have a bit of fun in little places around our home.  I was in the mood to change the mantel a bit…and it was a tad too early to make it ‘springy’….so, I did a little impromptu Valentine Mantel.

I gathered up all of the grainsack and red French ticking sachets that I could find around the house and put them in a little wire basket lined with linen. They are all filled with lavender and smell soooooo goooooddddd!

With three violinists in our home we have lots of violin sculptures….I thought they were perfect for the Valentine Mantel……..

Then I just filled in the rest of the space with all the white pitchers that I could find in the cabinets and on the shelves! I think I will fill them with roses for next week.

For the garland I used trim and ribbon in pinks, reds, and whites.

Do you do any Valentine decorating……or do you just sit back and enjoy the chocolate?

Hearts to you~
